What is the format of courses?
Each full length course consists of small segments. After each segment, a short quiz provides you an evaluation of your understanding of that topic. The comprehensive test at the end of the course provides a thorough, personal assessment. In addition, review any topics when you want to confirm that you are ready for formal testing and certification.
Modules are 10-15 minutes in length with a focus on one specific topic in the installation process. Quizzes at the end of each module provide you confirmation that you understand the subject matter.

“LPU enabled me to learn the basics of a lightning protection system so I could create a
better design to meet my clients needs.”
“I was searching for a way to have ongoing training for my employees in the lightning protection industry. LPU is the perfect combination of knowledge, ease, and affordability. I love the 24/7 accessibility and the ability to have continuing education offerings specific to my industry. Anyone pursuing Master Installer Certifications would be remiss not to use the LPU to prepare them for the tests.”
